‘Metals’ on AK Twitter handle leaves Kenyans in stitches
A funny typographical error on Athletics Kenya’s official Twitter handle has left many Kenyan’s amused.
AK’s Twitter handle @athletics_kenya had on two separate occasions posted on ‘metals’ (medals) being won at the ongoing IAAF World U-18 Championships at the Kasarani Stadium in Nairobi.

Curiously, this anomaly was yet to be corrected at the time this article was uploaded, some 17 hours later.
Understandably, these spelling mistakes eventually caused some considerable excitement from Twitter users.
Sample some of the Tweets below:
Who is tweeting for AK? Its MEDAL not METAL!
